Poor bedside manner

Rushes through the apt. Dismisses or ignores your thoughts and opinions. Too busy pushing his quick diagnosis on you so he can write scripts and run out the door. He is arrogant, pompous and conceited. It's unfortunate that his ego stands in the way of being an effective Dr. To add insult to injury, he will charge you $50 if you cancel your apt. As if he needs the money!

Arrogant and Rude

Repeatedly refused to speak to me directly re: my mother's care. When we eventually spoke, he was pompous, arrogant and rude. Refused to set up treatment, claiming it was really complicated and time consuming. In fact, I was able to set up the necessary treatment in one phone call. He told me unless my mother was dying, he had more important things to do. Unbelievable, but true!
